Unusual presentation.

A treat especially from August through Christmas, hallacas (called tamales in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America) are cornmeal wedges with meat, olives, raisins, onions, and peppers, wrapped in banana leaves, tied up in string, and boiled. You can find them in restaurants all over Caracas, but one we especially recommend is El Mastranto on Calle Nueva York.
